    I've notice a lot of ignorance coming from whites about blacks and blacks about whites on this forum. Some of the ideas people spout about other races is quite shocking to me. Some of the stuff makes me feel like we have gone no where in improving race relations.

    I think part of the problem is whites simply do not discuss race with blacks. and blacks do not discuss race with whites. I think if whites and blacks would be more open to discussing race with each we wouldn't have the amount of stereotypes and ignorant ideas floating around.

    There will always be racism, no amount of talking about it will change it. From my experiences, I've found that blacks are far more racist than whites.

    No, what's the point on discussing race with each other? Race should not be a factor in any facet of anyone's life. Everyone should be treated equally. If you treat people of another race badly, no amount of talking is going to change your attitude toward that race.

    What exactly signifies "good" 'race'-relations to you?

    From a white pov, what's the point ? It usually turns into the same type of "woe is me" fest and what not. There's not point to it.

    I think we need more honest and understanding discussions on race.

    I have interracially dated and there is a LOT of ignorance about races across races.

    After what White people did to blacks during Slavery, and the krap they still do to black people today, can you blaime black people for being anti white racists?
    I don't blaime black people for not liking whites, I blaime the White people that induced
    that hatfull mindset in black people.Think about it before you all respond.!!

    At some people might actually realize that we're seperated more by socio-economics than we are by race, religion, nationality or any other nonsense that pits us against each other.
